The Lovereading4Kids comment

Set in the glamorous seventies, this lively retelling is bursting with colourful period detail as Rapunzel goes from being a tower-block prisoner to a free and groovy girl.

Lynn Roberts had added some funky seventies attitude to the traditional tale of the girl with the long hair and alongside David Roberts' fabulous illustrations this really does create a fantastic reimagining of this classic tale. Great to share with young story lovers this is also a humorous nod to the 1970's and each page is filled with fab, fun loving pictures that will be enjoyed both by the young and old. Simply awesome.

Synopsis

Rapunzel by Lynn Roberts

Meet a truly funky, flares-clad fairy-tale heroine and a genuinely frightening villain in this hilarious re-working of a much-loved fairy tale. Poor Rapunzel can only dream about the world outside because her Aunt Edna keeps her locked up in their tower-block home. The lifts don't work and Aunt Edna is too lazy to take the stairs, so she uses Rapunzel's extraordinarily long hair to climb in and out of their tiny flat. Rapunzel's life is confined within orange and brown flower-printed walls, with only her beloved records for solace. But then one day, a handsome stranger climbs up her hair and a new adventure begins. Set in the glamorous seventies, this lively retelling is bursting with colourful period detail.

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.

Judi Davies – Aberdare Girls Sch

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

Alexander Boxall – age 11

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.
